    Might want to look at a straight truck with a sleeper 27 ft plus an additional western hay trailer 26'. Easier to get in and out of tight places than a 48' flatbed semi.

    I've never seen a 6-8 frame Hive boil out to where the forks were smashing Handfuls of bees. Hives with beards in 2 boxes are usually 20+ frames and ready to swarm.

    How many frames of bees did you have in your hives?

    Re: What is Nosema and how can we control it?

    How can you control Nosema? I believe that a strong immune system in bees helps them control Nosema themselves.

    Re: Nosema spore counts this fall

    Ian, did you try the Super DFM this winter possibly? I don't think they claim anything on Nosema but you never know. Lot of folks underestimate the power of beneficial bacteria.
